Oxford Lawyers –Criminal Lawyers Parramatta – Specialist Criminal Lawyers Sydney
Imagine obtaining a loan from the bank, paying every repayment on time with no arrears for many years and then one day the Police come knocking on your door and charge you for providing false information in the loan applications. Even though the bank has suffered no loss or no detriment, has not even made a complaint about the false information in the loan application and continues to do business with you.
Well that’s what happened to our client. He was previously a member of an Outlaw Motorcycle Gang, did apply for two loans after his release from jail one for 1.2 million dollars and the other for 1.5 million dollars. He was subsequently charged with two counts of Dishonestly Obtain Financial Advantage by Deception and faced up to 10 years imprisonment for each charge. Our client entered a plea of guilty to both charges.
Mr Zemarai Khatiz Principal of Oxford Lawyers, an Accredited Specialist in Criminal Law appeared for the client at Parramatta Local Court. Mr Khatiz managed to have the matters dealt with at the Local Court. We persuaded the Court to consider a combination of relevant factors as to why our client should not be sentenced to a term of imprisonment.
The Court agreed and sentenced our client to an 18 month Good Behaviour Bond pursuant to Section 9 of the Crimes Sentencing Procedure Act 1999 even though the Magistrate went on to describe the amount of the loans as ‘breathtaking’ and that our client undeniably had a lengthy criminal record.
Our client was overwhelmed with the result and expressed his gratitude for the exceptional preparation of Mr Khatiz and the staff at Oxford Lawyers.
Should you find yourself or someone you know in a similar circumstance, you would want Mr Zemarai Khatiz and the Oxford Lawyers team on your side.
